Disney Plus costs $8 a month, making it cheaper than competing streaming services like HBO Max and Netflix. The low price helped Disney Plus amass more than 100 million subscribers since its launch in November 2019, and Disney is now on pace to overtake Netflix as the most popular streaming company by 2024, according to data from Ampere Analytics.
Disney Plus can also be bundled with Hulu and ESPN+ for $14 a month, bringing a $6 discount on the combined price of all three services. Deals on Disney Plus are occasionally available through other companies like Verizon, which offers a free Disney Plus subscription with some of its cellular data plans.

The Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN+ bundle currently cost $14 a month. If you sign up for each of these services individually, the total would come out to $19.97 a month. This means that you can enjoy a $6 discount when bundling the three together.
Existing Disney Plus or ESPN+ subscribers can upgrade to the bundle without having to cancel their current memberships. To upgrade and save, you can visit the Disney Plus bundle page here.
It should be noted the version of Hulu included in the bundle by default still features ads.
